Title
(EN) SHOPPING TROLLEY CONSTRUCTION AND IDENTIFICATION SYSTEM
(FR) CONSTRUCTION DE CHARIOT ET SYSTEME D'IDENTIFICATION
Abstract
(EN)
A trolley, for example a shopping trolley, is constructed from essentially planar plastic moulded components, for storage and transport in a dismantled condition. The trolley basket is formed from side panels (31), bottom panel (30), front panel (32), rear panel (33) with integrally moulded child's seat, and a handle, while the base is formed by side rails (35) and a front joining plate (36). The trolley is assembled using interlocking means in such a way that once each component is assembled onto the trolley, it cannot be dismantled until the final component is dismantled. The trolley may incorporate a scannable identification device and means responding to trolley identification are used to provide information as to the pattern of movement of the trolleys and also to cause the conduct of a financial transaction.
(FR)
Un chariot, utilisé par exemple dans un magasin, est construit avec des éléments plastiques moulés pratiquement plats, ce qui permet de le ranger de le transporter à l'état démonté. Le volume utile est constitué de panneaux latéraux (31), d'un panneau inférieur (30), d'un panneau avant (32) et d'un panneau arrière (33) qui comprend un siège d'enfant moulé intégré, ainsi que d'une poignée, alors que la base de ce chariot est formée de pouterelles latérales (35) et d'une plaque de liaison avant (36). Le chariot est assemblé par enchevêtrement de façon qu'une fois chaque élément monté, on ne peut le démonter tant que le dernier élément n'est pas lui-même démonté. Ce chariot peut comporter un dispositif d'identification scannable, et un système réagissant à l'identification du chariot fournit des informations sur le déplacement de ce dernier et autorise une transaction financière.
